People's Health Trusts Active Communities funding programme application Zoom session

When 25 June at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

FREE online Zoom session Thursday 25th June 13:00 — 14:30

This zoom session will help you to decide if your idea for a community project will be eligible for funding from the People’s Health Trust and will help you to complete the short first stage application. Participants will be guided through the criteria and application form and be able to ask questions.

People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme is providing grants of £5,000 - £40,000 over up to 2 years for supporting people to create or shape local projects to make their community/neighbourhood an even better place to live. The funding is for projects in specific areas of Leeds where health inequalities are highest. The trust is looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. So you could be a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages or a community of interest - where a group of people come together who have a shared issue they want to address, this could be neighbourhood based or wider.

Previously funded ideas: a group for local older and younger people to get together to do activities (e.g. craft, technology, history); a group for adults to learn English and enterprise skills connected to sewing; a local magazine written by and for the benefit of disabled people; a community café created and run by single parents as a space to meet, a tenants action group for people living on an estate.

The short on-line first stage application form must be completed by 1pm on 1st July. It would be really helpful if you visit the Trust’s website and read the guidance: and have an idea of the project you might want funding for.

Delivered by Kaye Wilson, Project Worker (funding and support to small groups)
